Sydney, get ready.
Perth super troopers Sugar Army are marching on your town soon armed with irresistibly sweet tunes from their debut album The Parallels Amongst Ourselves.
Resistance is futile.
See Sugar Army rip indie rock a new arsehole when they ravage the stage in Sydney at the Annandale Hotel on Saturday 5th September with support from Here Come The Birds and new line-up addition, The Vignettes, on the frontline.
Featuring the staggering singles and triple j favourites ‘Acute’ and newbie ‘Tongues In Cheeks’, The Parallels Amongst Ourselves debuted at #2 on the AIR Indie Album Charts, and #87 nationally and #39 in WA on the ARIA Album Charts. It also earned love as Album of the Week on RTR FM and SYN FM.
The jaw-dropping (more accurately jaw-breaking) video for Tongues In Cheeks sees drummer and visionary James Sher make his directing debut. It’s three minutes and forty one seconds of intense twists and turns, face rape and food torture that resulted in a camera assistant bursting into tears onset. Curious to see this warped bit of genius? Watch the Tongues In Cheeks clip at: www.myspace.com/sugararmybarracks
It is still early days yet but Sugar Army have already developed a reputation for their spine-tingling live shows, as proven by the sell-out launch in Perth, and an invitation to play HomeBake 2009 – 15th Anniversary, the music festival that features the finest of local Australian artists. See Sugar Army obliterate the stage in Sydney!
